Instructions
  1. Grease a large soup pot with butter, heating over medium heat, before adding your onion and garlic and cooking until fragrant, 3-5 minutes.
  2. As that heats, cut your broccoli into florets (unless using all stems, which is an option). Peel and dice the broccoli stalk, and slice the celery, before adding the broccoli and celery to the pot, adding the stock just after.
  3. Bring to a boil, cooking 10-15 minutes, adding the spinach for a minute before adding your sour cream (or crème fraiche), blue cheese, lemon juice, and fresh basil (leaving some blue cheese and basil for garnishing purposes, if so desired).
  4. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to smooth your soup out. Taste the soup, adding salt and pepper to taste, then pulse one last time.
  5. Divide into four serving bowls before drizzling each bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil and garnish with blue cheese and basil as so desired. Serve immediately.
